We offer both LGV C1 and PCV D1 ambulance driver training courses to enable individuals to drive an ambulance or a passenger transport vehicle (minibus).
The LGV C1 (ambulance) driving licence is required to drive most emergency ambulances. Generally the Ambulance Service requires you to have the LGV C1 licence entitlement. Other areas of the county may require both the LGV C1 and PCV D1.
Our LGV C1 driver training vehicle is a Mercedes 511 (5 tonne van 6 speed) it has the advantage of being small and manoeuvrable, with simple controls, brakes and gears, whilst meeting all DSA requirements to gain your LGV C1 licence.
The LGV C1 licence is for drivers 18 or over and who passed their car driving test after January 1st 1997 and wish to drive a van or rigid medium goods vehicle with a MAM over 3500kg and up to 7500kg.
